An historical mansion | HAY X Ahrend exhibition | 3 days of design


Visiting the HAY exhibition at the historical Lindencrone Palæ apartment in Copenhagen was one of the many highlights of my Copenhagen trip. The apartment, owned by Danish businessman Troels Holch Povlsen, was for the occasion decorated with a selection of HAY furniture in an apartment style setting. Main attraction was the installation build with the famous Result Chairs and Pyramid Collection, originally designed by Dutch Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld. Being Dutch I am really proud of this iconic design pieces I grew up with and sat on at school.

The Result chairs were originally designed in 1958 by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld and the Pyramid collection in 1959 by Rietveld while they worked at Ahrend for schools throughout the Netherlands and I think it is a great that the collaboration between HAY and Ahrend is making these Dutch design icons available again for everyone.

Other rooms in the impressive white mansion were furnished with HAY furniture and accessories, I am so happy I changed plans after running into Melissa, an old Oslo friend I know since my first blogging years, and went to the apartment first where I also met Elisabet Heijer and Katerina As a blogger you always meet fellow bloggers and are never alone, even when travelling on your own. I love our small community where we all do our own thing and respect each others work, enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think.
